Sewer issue at Curepe Presbyterian being addressed says MoE

The Education Ministry is working with the National Maintenance Training and Security Company Limited and the Regional Corporation to resolve the sewer issues at the Curepe Presbyterian School as quickly as possible.

However, in the interim, classes will continue as normal.
This according to Education Minister, Dr Nyan Gadsby-Dolly.

The school is presently experiencing leakages from an overflowing septic tank.

Gadsby-Dolly told media: “It is not unusual for schools with aging sewer plants to have issues that must be attended to. There are over 20 schools I can point to that currently fall into this category.

The Education Minister’s statement comes on the heels of a call by St Augustine MP Khadijah Ameen over the weekend for the matter to be addressed.

Ameen said the leaking septic tank has created a hazardous environment for those on the compound, with school being dismissed on Friday.

She also called on the Education Minister to step in and complete the new Curepe Presbyterian School which was a project started by the UNC but remains abandoned.

The St Augustine MP adds that the space in the old school is limited.
